Work-related stress can be extremely harmful to an employee’s psychological and physical health and is defined as the “adverse reaction that people have to the excessive pressures and other demands that are placed on them” according to the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

According to estimates made by the Labour Forced Survey work-related stress in 2011/12 accounted for 40% of the total of all work-related illnesses at about 428000 cases.

Work-related stress cannot only be harmful to an employee but can also be extremely costly for an employer. Employers have a legal duty of care and are required under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to carry out risk assessments of their employee’s job roles and working environment to ensure that they take any necessary preventative measures to avoid stress at work.

Mrs S from Bristol recently consulted the dedicated employment law team at Michael Lewin Solicitors to discuss her case and eligibility to bring a compensation claim against her employer. She told us that she is a part-time social worker who has been given an excessive workload much greater than her full-time colleagues. Mrs S went on to tell us how she was then subjected to unwarranted criticism all adding to her stress at work.
